On Tuesday 23 May, the College was represented in the annual VCAA Plain English Speaking Competition by Tasma Eddy of Year 11 and Sam Hudson of Year 12. The competition seeks to develop skills in clear thinking and cogent articulation through a supportive competition. Students are required to present a six-minute prepared speech about a current issue of their choice, and then to speak off-the-cuff about an unseen general topic.
Our two speakers performed ably, with Tasma arguing the moral imperative for veganism, and Sam exploring the ethical considerations around human genetic editing. Well done to these two studnets for not only their speaking efforts, but for engaging so thoughtfully with these difficult contemporary issues.
